In any case I decided it was time to make purses. After all my stock was getting so low I no longer took them to craft shows. And I am doing CraftBoston at the end of this month. http://www.societyofcrafts.org/cbspring/springinfo.asp So low that I could not even offer customers in my studio a good selection. You know the routine--what color are you looking for? let me show you some others? Always does help sales.
And yet I really did not want to make the same old purses. Been there. Done that. Until it occurred to me--I could create new designs. New colors. After all, these are just purses. They don't have to match do they? Why not have fun?
I mean who would not want this lime green and black purse? Cool isn't it?

Or a teal and rust purse? Sassy, isn't it?

Of course there was the red and grey purse that sold "hot off the sewing machine". What fun. Yes, I do actually make them two at a time so I still have one of these purses in stock.

What about stripes? Stripes and red. That is different isn't it?

Or a blue and mauve purse? How elegant. I actually saw those colors on an episode of Murder She Wrote. Amazing what can inspire me, isn't it?
